Christmas trees are (hopefully) down, wrapping paper recycled, unwanted gifts from mothers-in-law are hidden around the house and there are no turkey leftovers, well… left. Christmas is officially over.
But getting back to work isn’t all that bad! Yes, the early mornings hurt, and you feel hungry all the time but it’s not all doom and gloom. For starters, those who did come back to work last week only had to work 3 days. They were eased into the swing of things gently. And looking at the timelines (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the new timeline feature our very talented developers have been working on) there’s been lots of exciting projects come up over Christmas.
David is uncharacteristically optimistic (we think it’s all the extra time he’s spending with his dog) as more projects for the team are being won and the fact that he’s had beer and pizza this week. Jeremy has new shoes and has started back up at the gym following a course of physiotherapy, Tom has a black mouse to match his keyboard (it’s the small things) and Keiron looks like his normal perpetually-happy self. Everyone seems to be refreshed and ready for the year ahead.
And what a year it’s going to be! 2019 so far is bringing with it an exciting IOT project, where we’ll be producing a gamification user experience for our clients at Hitachi. We’ve picked up an interesting project for a new Financial Services client who is gearing up to venture into the previously untrodden territory. Plus, we’re building a website for a fast-growing telemarketing business. Not to mention all the fun projects we’re already a part of.
We’re going to be as busy as usual. But luckily as a team, we thrive off the gentle hum of fingertips tapping at keyboards, the whirring of over-stressed cooling fans and the steady thud of the office sound system.
2019 is looking like it is going to be a record year for the Jerram brand as a whole, but most importantly for the team. We’ve found our stride and it seems as though very little can stop us now!
Keep up to date with our progress and all of our individual, quirky happenings with our new timeline feature, added to the bottom of each team member’s page. There are many a funny story to be told, so make sure you stay tuned!
We wish you an equally prosperous year, and we hope to hear from you – should you need us!
Last week was fantastic – We presented to another new client and should be receiving a decision this week sometime. Having recently stepped back into the gym after a few months out, I’m feeling a bit more limber and have resolved a lot of back pain I’d been suffering with. The weekend was spent chasing around my exuberant 4-year-old daughter and preparing for the week ahead.
Today I completed the migration of a GraphQL middleware setup in our project and successfully got this working on our “Platform as a service Provider”.
For obvious reasons I won’t say what this is, but if you are interesting in discussing with us our approach or have a project you would like support with get in touch in the chat window at the bottom.
